Domain Name Transfer Notes

  • Year Free Extension: Domain Name Transfer will add one more year by default to the current expiry date of your domain name. For e.g., if your domain name expires on 1st May 2015 and you placed a Domain Transfer order on 1st April 2015 then after domain transfer is complete, the new expiry date of your domain name will be 1st May 2016. So you will not lose any time even if you choose to transfer your domain few months in advance much before your domain names expiry date.
  • 1 Year Extension for Domain Name Transfer is subject to additional terms of domain transfer status. If your domain name had recently expired with your earlier domain registrar, and you recently renewed it with them, then please do not transfer your domain within 45 days of the previous expiry date. It will not add 1 year extension to your domain name, and you will lose your domain renewal fees paid to earlier registrar. There are rules and regulations set forth by ICANN and Domain Registry that prohibit the transfer of domains which are recently registered within 60 days of current date or recently transferred within the last 60 Days of current date. In any of such case, please wait for more than 60 days before placing a domain name transfer order.
  • During domain transfer process, Name Servers of your domain name are saved as is. Hence your domain will not face any downtime during this transfer process. If you are using earlier registrar’s name servers then please ensure you update your name servers to our name servers at the earliest as your earlier registrar may remove your DNS records from their zone as soon as your domain transfer is completed. Please don’t forget to take a snap-shot or copy all your DNS records before placing order order. Once transfer processis completed, add all earlier DNS entries in to our DNS records. You may want to take a DNS snapshot or a copy your records from earlier registrar.
  • Once you place domain transfer order, the admin contact of domain name will receive Domain Transfer Approval email. There will be a transfer approval link for confirmation of domain transfer. You will have to click on a transfer approval link for the transfer request to be sent to the registry. Your current registrar will send you emails asking for confirmation for domain name transfer. If there is any change of your domain name ownership information, i.e. change in registrant name, email address, etc. then you may have to first get the change of registrant information updated. Most likely if your contact information remains the same then your transfer process will be completed smoothly.
